Managing Disruptive Behavior and Violence in Healthcare Settings

Recent events bring to attention a serious problem that could affect the healthcare sector. Multiple studies show healthcare workers are regularly subjected to minor as well as major verbal and physical abuse from patients, visitors and other staff. Many incidents go unreported, and the number of reported cases is on the rise. Compared to other working environments, hospitals and adult care facilities are dangerous places to work with many pieces of equipment and medical tools that can be used to cause harm.

This downloadable PDF resource provides real-world examples that illustrate why healthcare administrators need to implement programs to protect medical and security staff, patients and visitors to their facilities.
